Bashy – Angels Can't Fly

Bashy has been away from music for almost a year due to other commitments such as acting, but today he released possibly one of his best, and most heart-felt tracks ever, ‘Angels can’t fly’. The beat used is the True Tiger remix of Ed Sheeran’s ‘A-Team’ which has been around for a while now, and the concept is based around ‘angels’ who may turn to ‘demons’ due to life events.

It’s a million miles away from his previous songs such as ‘Make my day’ or ‘Fantasy’ and touches on subjects such as social exclusion, gang culture and lack of opportunities for poor youths. Obviously this is in wake of the riots, but Bashy chooses to take a less self-righteous view on things compared to the media and politicians in recent times. It is this which will win plaudits, as Bashy doesn’t come across as preachy or pretentious. Hopefully we will get more material, and this song has reminded us of how amazing he and his stories can be.
